YouTube star ‘KSI’ trains with Floyd Mayweather Sr. for his next fight

Friday, March 16, 2018

Olajide William “JJ” Olatunji, better known by his online alias of ‘KSI’, is a massive star on YouTube who has garnered over 18 million subscribers on his channel which has an incredible four billion total views altogether. Out of all of the channels and videos on YouTube, KSI is the 42nd most subscribed channel which really is quite an amazing feat.

Last month, KSI’s superstardom took another jump as he successfully settled an online beef in the boxing ring versus another YouTube star, Joe Weller, which KSI won by TKO.

What’s really kind of amazing about that fight was that according to The Daily Mail, the viewership for that fight outperformed major recent sporting events like Wimbledon as well as the FA Cup Finals, and it was a boxing match between two guys who have never boxed before!

But now, it looks like KSI has got himself into another online quarrel versus another YouTube sensation, Logan Paul, and it looks like another boxing match is on the horizon.

In this video, we see KSI training with boxing great, Floyd Mayweather Sr., in preparation for his next upcoming bout and, though he is far from the professional-level, it definitely looks like he’s making some improvements.

While these ‘online beef’ bouts are kind of ridiculous and silly, at least KSI is taking his training seriously as we can see here in the video below.
